How to perform bulk assignment from activity
I know there is an out-of-the-box gadget where user can perform bulk assignment but we would like to build our own screen and custom activity (because of many reasons). Now we already created a screen that has a repeating grid that contains a list of assignment. I want to have a button that calls an activity to process all assignments. Is it possible? If so, which activity?

Please see attached "HowToAdvanceAssignmentsInBulk.xlsx" for my solution.
Basically it's possible. Could you please provide some details about what you wanted to do on the assignment on click of that button? Normally we can perform almost all the actions that OOTB bulk assignments process provides to you.
1. Instead of creating a whole new screen and activity and set of rules, you can try to customise the existing one, if that suits your requirement.
2. If you really need to customise the functionality, then you can always call the activities based on the button click event. Finishassignment, PerformAssignment, etc. So, you will need to call the same activity in iteration, based on how many assignments/rows are selected for the operation.
Please let me know if you need any other information.
